This document presents a spurious MSIV closure analysis for Santa Maria de Garoña Nuclear Power Plan describing the problems found when comparing calculated and real data.

The plant is a General Electric Boiling Water Reactor 3, containment type Mark I. It is operated by NUCLENOR, S.A. and was connected to the grid in 1971.

The analysis has been performed by the Applied Physics Department from the University of Cantabria and the Analysis and Operation Section from NUCLENOR, S.A. as a part of an agreedment for developing an engineering simulator of operational transients and accidents for Santa Maria de Garoña Power Plant.

The analysis was performed using the frozen version of TRAC-BF1 (G1J1) code and is the second of two NUCLENOR contributions to the International Code Applications and Assessment Program (ICAP).

The code was run in a Cyber 932 with operating system NOS/VE, property of NUCLENOR, S.A.. A programming effort was carried out in order to provide suitable graphics from the output file.
